(Me with a rare Black Patti 78)
My name is John Mitchell, and I created Groovy 901 out of love for two things - music and creating.

Early in my 20s, I sought out and bought hundreds of old records and sheet music - the culmination of which was a world class collection that now resides at the Center for Popular Music at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

The work you find on this site reflects my life-long love of all kinds of music and the realization that creating things is not only fun, but therapeutic. I hope you find something of interest to you here.
